The artist wrote in a letter to the compiler of the Tate entry dated 14 January 1988 that these works were titled after they were made and that they were abstract exercises in the techniques of line engraving. When asked if the network of fine lines related in any way to Barbara Hepworth’s sculpture, the artist replied that they related more to the work of Naum Gabo, who lived in Cornwall from 1939 to 1946″.
